Preschool Advantage held its annual Preschool Director’s Luncheon on March 28 at the Parish House of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown. This annual event brings together area preschool directors with Preschool Advantage staff and volunteers in an informal environment to share successes, strategies and concerns.

Preschool Advantage partners with 24 preschools in Morris and Somerset counties, providing tuition assistance for families who are unable to afford the cost of quality preschool. Three of these partner preschools are located in Madison: Madison Montessori School, Rainbow Montessori School and the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA, a TAPinto Madison sponsor.

Preschool Advantage is a nonprofit organization with the vision that all children should have access to high-quality early education. Since its inception more than 20 years ago, almost 1,400 tuitions have been paid, and it is the organization’s goal to fund 100 tuitions each year by the year 2020.
